Voter ID critics: Politicians are manipulating the system for their own benefit | The Raw Story

“What we see when we look at these highly restrictive voter ID laws,” she continued, “is they actually end up cherry picking voters, allowing politicians to choose who votes rather than letting the voters choose their politicians. … Our studies have shown us that there are — that 18 percent of senior citizens over 65, that 25 percent of African Americans, that a high percentage of young people all lack these strict kinds of government issued photo IDs.”

Gaskins went on to say that ten million Americans live more than ten miles away from an office that issues photo IDs, that half a million of those lack cars, that public transportation is often inadequate, especially in rural areas, and that the offices may not be open at times when people holding full-time jobs can get to them.
